I have created the required data structures in the driver. 
When I do a insmod of machine driver, there are 8 references of platform driver 
taken (4 cpu dai and 4 platform driver) and 4 of codec driver taken
When I do rmmod of machine driver, the references of platform driver and codec 
driver are left at 3. I did a trace back as where all the references are taken and
 where all they are released. I find that 4 references of codec driver and 
 platform driver are taken but only one of them is released.

How do I fix this problem?
